Tropical Depression Nine was centered about 170 miles west-southwest of Key West, Florida, as of late Monday morning. The depression may struggle a bit in the southern Gulf of Mexico before finally making a Gulf Coast landfall later this week with soaking rain and gusty winds.

This latest system was designated a tropical depression Sunday after a Hurricane Hunter reconnaissance mission finally found a sufficiently organized low-pressure center with collocated shower and thunderstorm activity.

Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:14 AM EDT Aug. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... the threat for rip currents will be in place all day,
however, it will be highest between 930 am and 330 PM due to
tidal effects.

* Impacts... a 15 to 16 second long period easterly swell,
generated by distant major Hurricane Gaston in the central
Atlantic, will continue to pile up water behind The Sand Bar
today. This will result in numerous strong rip currents in the
surf zone. The seaward pull of a rip current can be life
threatening. Only swim in the ocean near a lifeguard.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape... face the shore and call or wave
for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
current.
